BARAOU SECURES VICTORY OVER EGGINGTON TO CLAIM EBU SUPER WELTERWEIGHT TITLE

In a riveting clash in Telford, Abass Baraou (15-1, 9 KOs) delivered a career-defining performance, triumphing over former British, Commonwealth, and European welterweight champion Sam Eggington (34-9, 20 KOs) to seize the EBU super welterweight title.

The bout commenced with a cautious exchange of jabs, as both fighters gauged each other’s strengths. Baraou, however, seized the initiative, maneuvering Eggington onto the ropes and unleashing a barrage of body shots.

As the contest progressed, Baraou showcased his counter-punching prowess, consistently dictating the pace of the fight. Despite Eggington’s efforts to retaliate and assert his power, Baraou maintained control, skillfully navigating the exchanges.

In the later rounds, Baraou’s dominance became increasingly evident, with precise hooks and combinations finding their mark on Eggington, who displayed resilience but struggled to mount a significant comeback.
